A look at 20 players expected to contend in the Masters on April 10-13 at Augusta National Golf Club. Listed in predicted order of finish:


Age: 24.

Country: Northern Ireland.

World ranking: 7.

Worldwide wins: 10.

Majors: US Open (2011), PGA Championship (2012).

Masters moment: Losing a four-shot lead with an 80 in the final round of 2011.

Forecaddie: Plenty of signs point to him returning to the top of the game, it’s just a matter of how soon. He’s had a chance going into the final round at three of his four stroke-play events this year. That includes the Honda Classic, where he lost a two-shot lead and then lost in a four-man playoff. He showed in 2011 his game is suited for the Masters. This would be the ideal place to announce his return.



Age: 29.

Country: United States.

World ranking: 10.

Worldwide wins: 8.
